Come join Adult Learning as we watch "Gentleman's Agreement", a 1947 drama exposing the antisemitism of prosperous postwar America, and the insidious way that Jews were excluded from upscale social clubs, vacation resorts and of course jobs. There were no official bans, just a nod and a wink and a “gentleman’s agreement” between conservative-minded Wasp gentiles that they know the sort of people they want to associate with.
